Substance among Other Categories


Substance among Other Categories

This book revives a neglected but important topic in philosophy: the nature of substance. The belief that there are individual substances (for example, material objects and persons) is at the core of our common-sense view of the world, yet many metaphysicians deny the very coherence of the concept of substance. The authors develop a novel account of what an individual substance is in terms of independence from other beings.

"Substance Among Other Categories is a useful essay in contemporary metaphysics. It would make interesting reading for graduate students and philosophers interested in the question of what substance is." Charlotte Witt, The Philosophical Review
